Description

Top neurosurgeon Samantha Thomson needs to get married fast and is tightlipped as to why. And with over $200,000 on offer to tie the knot, no questions asked, cash-strapped ER nurse Hayden Perez isn't about to demand answers.

The deal is only for a year of marriage, but Hayden's going into it knowing it will be a nightmare. Sam is complicated, rude, kind of cold, and someone Hayden barely tolerates at work, let alone wants to marry. The hardest part is that Hayden has to convince everyone around them that they're madly in love and that racing down the aisle together is all they've ever wanted.

What could possibly go wrong?

Contains mature themes.

Love this book

I am a new fan of G Benson. The two people from different worlds find common ground. The humor that pops up throughout the book made me laugh out loud. Give us more audio books. I definitely recommend this one.

sweet!

I liked the storyline for this book and I know it's been done sort of in movies before but still I liked how the story unfolded and I was definitely happy with the ending. I was a little sad that it ended. Audible needs more books by this author.

Don’t judge a book by its cover

After completing this, I quickly realized The English idiom “don’t judge a book by its cover” would have been equally suitable. G. Benson brought her characters to life and familiarity. How often have you been treated in a hospital and the more personable people are not the doctors with alphabet soup after their names but the nurses? As I traveled through the journey of the characters I learned more about LGBT people, the differences, terminology, reference preferences, etc. After listening to a chapter or two I thought of situations I was in and how the author hit the nail on the head. It is truly a must read/listen for all romantics and others.

Great Listen!

The book was excellent, having a combination of pleasant angst and heat. I was surprised at some of the turning points but they made the book that much more enjoyable. The characters not only had chemistry but they were well developed and had back stories that were real and emotional. Overall excellent book!

Soooo good

When I reflect on this book I realize and truly appreciate all it has to offer. Multicultural, multiage, non-binary...the book has it all without feeling preachy or pretentious. These pieces are backdrop to the great story. Curmudgeonly surgeon Samantha Thomson needs a wife and needs one now. Fiery nurse Hayden Perez, stretched to her financial limit, needs a break. On a whim Hayden answers a Craig's List ad that brings the two acquaintances together and on an adventure that helps heal wounds both harbor. With a great supporting cast and a solid story line it's a fun, rewarding read/listen. Go for it. You'll love it.

Nice flow, interesting chars, solid ending!

I like the books of Robin Alexander a lot, and the characters of this novel had a similar depth and complexity, as well as not living in a familial vacuum like those of so many other novels in this category.

The story flow was interesting from the beginning, and kept me wanting to keep going...and going...and.. okay, it was a bit addictive. The author was able to pull off a sort of tease-and-yank atmosphere all through the novel, without it being so abrupt I felt robbed. The tension had a nice rise and settle flow to it that kept me fairly comfortable through the novel, despite the appearance of certain personality types that generally put me on edge in real life.

The concept was really nifty and portrayed in such a way that made complete sense, as ridiculous as it sounded at first blush. Every decision by the characters appeared to be based on real background and personal behavioral patterns.

The narrator was awesome! Every character sounded distinct. Accents were authentic sounding. Her reading was flawless. One or two words were emphasized differently than I'm used to, but that may just be some regional thing I'm not familiar with. I honestly can't imagine anyone else doing this novel this well...I'll be watching for her other projects. :)

Really, the only off-note, I suppose, was that it appeared that the only real couples, of any quality, in this entire world, were gay or lesbian. The one thing I've noticed about Robin Alexander's novels (sorry, I probably shouldn't be comparing this way but she provides so many awesome examples. :) ), is that the straight-to-gay ratio appears to be relatively similar to reality, and there are plenty of examples of different couples, straight or gay. I do recognize that people will tend to be more tightly associated to their particular communities, though, so it's possible the author was simply simulating an environment where, for instance, a gay individual tends to recognize and notice gay individuals more than other people. Of course, it may simply be that the author is assuming a particular audience, perhaps justifiably, who may only wish to read about people like them.

This novel exceeded my expectations in a lot of ways, which I'm grateful for, since I primarily started reading lesbian romance for the awesome character work and stories about deep personal connections that I've come to expect from the genre. Enjoy this one!

Fabulous!!!

I ABSOLUTELY adored this listen. G. Benson wove an incredibly absorbing story that not only held my attention, but I found myself switching it on at 3am to get just a bit more. I loved G. Benson’s style of writing it from only one of the character’s perspective which left me (like Hayden), puzzled, inquisitive, and dying to understand Sam. Additionally, Tanya Eby’s reading enhanced my enjoyment even more. I highly recommend this audio book.

Simply loved it

This is a great story - convincing, funny, sneaky, heart-warming and gesellschaftskritisch. 😆
The chars develop nicely, and the facts are straight.

Wundervolle Story mit mega Suchtfaktor

G Benson ist mittlerweile eine meiner Lieblingsautoren und auch diese Geschichte hat mich von Anfang an gleich gefesselt. Der Schreibstil der Autorin ist genau mein Ding: Locker, humorvoll, Spannung bis zum Schluss und alles verpackt mit sehr viel Gefühl. Ich konnte gar nicht aufhören zu lesen weil die Geschichte immer mehr in die Tiefe ging und immer weiter bisher verschwiegene Wunde Punkte beider Charaktere aufgedeckt hat. Ich habe bis zum Schluss mitgefiebert, gehofft und gelacht - viel und laut gelacht - und recherchiert! Immer wieder beeindruckend, wie die Autorin ernst zu nehmende Themen in eine bezaubernde Liebesgeschichte mitintegriert. Das Buch hat mich dazu gebracht mich mit dem Thema Alzheimer und Non-Binary/Genderqueer auseinanderzusetzen. Besonders die liebevolle als auch verzweifelte Hingabe der Familie zu Hayden’s an Alzheimer erkrankten Mutter hat mich sehr nachdenklich gestimmt.

Alle Charaktere, als auch Nebenchataktere sind sehr sympathisch und am liebsten würde man sie alle einfach mal drücken - am meisten aber Abuela :)
Vielen Dank G. Benson für wieder einmal ein absolutes Meisterwerk!! Ich freue mich auf deine nächste Geschichte <3

Zu Tanya Eby: Spitzenleistung von der Sprecherin! Mit ihrer tollen Stimme und der absolut tollen Erzählung hat sie der Geschichte noch das Sahnehäubchen draufgesetzt - ABSOLUT TOP!

Top score

One of the rare books that manages to get away with a completely predictable storyline and just teetering on the edge of cheesy but never tumbling over. Mostly believable main characters (although Sam goes from socially awkward to simply laid-back and a loner a little too quickly) and adorable supporting characters who will stay with you for a long time. The (of course happy) end will come way too soon.

More please, G Benson!
